My life is average - so beautiful!

Second post within LESS than a week? I know, what is coming of me? I'm actually blogging. It's a good thing, I promise!

Some things that caused this post:

I'm going up north.
To see wonderful friends, and go to a work conference!
I'm so excited for both of these things! I will learn a lot at the conference about after school programs and how to be a better site coordinator. Plus - it just feels so adult-like to say that I'm traveling far away for a work conference.
And these friends - my heart is jumping all around my chest to see their faces! I don't even know what we'll do, and I don't much care. Just to see them, and chat with them, and maybe sit on their couches - that is just perfect.

Also, Mexico accepted me. Way great, yeah!
I'm not sure what this will bring. But I am sure that it will be fantastic.
Who knows what life will present with family, school, and work? Perhaps this adventure may not pan out in the way I expect.
But for now, what this adventure holds for me is to go to Mexico and have a glorious experience.

Oh! and we are officially moved.
Moved out.
Moved in.
And now, for the unpacking to begin!

Another thing - Two friends are returning to home this next week, in less than a week. This time next week, they will be here. And am I a little excited? WAY.
There will be a list of things to do that will hopefully never end, because it would feel over once it's all checked off. How about we just continually add to this list? Good plan.

And, it's Autumn. My favourite time of the year.
It's still warm and sunny, yet crisp in the mornings.
There are crunchy leaves to make into piles - and jump in. (and this year I have a tree!)
There is changing colour everywhere.
There are jeans, sneakers, scarves, and jackets.
There are hot tubs.
There is a green chair, a green blanket, and a full bookshelf to choose from.
Yes, I do enjoy Autumn.

Last thing - have you seen this? You should.
You should also look at their other colour ads.
Because they are colourful, and happiness dwells therein.

It's just good is all.

I felt like I should update the blogworld on my life's happenings. So here I go-

School. It's fantastic! Did you know? I don't think I ever thought I could get so much joy out of learning until I began college. Many don't give much credit to Dixie State, which is too bad. They're missing out. I have had the most spectacular experiences here. The music department, the education department, the red rock, the sunshine, the "Do not wade in fountain" fountains that I wade in everyday, and of course all of the people! These beautiful, wonderful, talented, intelligent friends I have made. Did I mention the sunshine? Because there's a lot of it! And my soul sings with it daily!

Work. My job is the best. The absolute best. Some don't like Mondays, which is also another too bad of a thing. I love Mondays because I begin my week with Institute and work. What better? There's probably something, however I have yet to find it. But don't worry, I'm only 20. I'll search and let you know.

Church. I. Love. The Gospel. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love my Heavenly Father, the Savior, and the Holy Ghost. Today, I went to the Temple- it has been so long! (but moving is almost over and school is beginning to be organized.)
Can I tell all of you just how happy it made me? I'll share an excerpt of this thing I write in- "My soul has been fed. My heart nurtured. My Spirit enlightened. And my mind at ease. I. Love. The Temple." I don't know how else to explain this beauty, except maybe in these simple words- I'm happy.

Some things I've learned about me. and other stuff.
-I wiggle my feet when I write. and read.
-I tend to favor the english way of spelling things. Like practise, colour, and favourite. Does that mean I spell things wrong?
-I finished The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Letters, History, Love, Adventure. The best!
-I tried to find my little hometown's "Love Gate" and failed. Anyone know where it is located exactly?
-I got a haircut. And don't worry- I look the same.
-I'm still waiting to hear back for Mexico. Maybe next week...
-Tonight, after moving more stuff, my family and I made fruit dip, ate fruit, and watched Pocahontas.
-I have lots of homework to do. And border league volleyball for work. And cleaning, and storage shed. And KidSpace reports, and planning KidSpace for work. Life.

Love to you all.

P.S. Dear Tiffani. Happy Birthday, dear. You are beautiful. I hope the day was just as you are!

P.P.S. Go here. It's a favourite.
